WTF?? Hernych and Cipolla are playing final set tiebreak?

I'm watching livescore and I can't believe my own eyes - two players are playing tiebreak in final set of GRAND SLAM? I always thought there are no tiebreaks in these situations, or maybe I'm wrong

U.S. Open has a final set tiebreak, the others do not.

Re: WTF?? Hernych and Cipolla are playing final set tiebreak?

oh...OK then. Anyway I don't get why US Open has to be different from other Slams, I think it's quite unfair to decide the destiny of twp players so quickly - they've come such a long way until that point, and then it's boom boom boom, and a hotter player celebrates...

Wawrinka probably peed himself when Youzhny withdrew.

It's all about TV programming, US TV do not want too long games. It sucks IMHO...
